Dollar General renovations slated

Dollar General in Charlotte Court House will soon see renovations, according to information from Dollar General’s corporate office.

“I’m happy to share that Dollar General plans to remodel its store at 401 George Washington Highway in Charlotte Court House … in the coming weeks,” said Dollar General’s Media Representative Angela Petkovic.

She said the store would close for approximately one week during the remodel later this month, however, she said construction progress can alter the project timeline.

Petkovic said the renovated store would provide an updated layout/design and expanded frozen/refrigerated food offerings.

She said the store would still carry the same product categories and brands as before.

In addition, Petkovic said, “based on our current plans, we are also planning to provide complimentary Dollar General tote bags to customers during the weekend of Aug. 11, while supplies last.”

She said the Dollar General location in Charlotte Court House originally opened in 2010.

“We look forward to welcoming the community to see our remodeled location,” said Petkovic.

Recently, Charlotte County has seen an influx of Dollar General stores in the area, with current stores underway for Red House, Phenix and Wylliesburg.

Petkovic said previously the new location to Red House Road in Red House is slated for a late summer 2018 grand opening, however, construction progress could alter the estimated completion date.

“When choosing store locations, meeting customers’ needs is Dollar General’s top priority. The company looks for places where we can offer customers an easy and convenient shopping choice,” said Petkovic previously.

“We know convenience is a major factor in our customers’ shopping decisions as we generally serve customers within a three to five mile radius, or 10 minute drive. We also take demographic trends, competitive factors, traffic patterns and community concerns into consideration.”

According to a press release from Dollar General, as of May 4, the company operated 14,761 stores in 44 states.

“The Company plans to open approximately 900 new stores, remodel 1,000 stores and relocate 100 stores in fiscal year 2018,” said the release.
